|About these ratings|
The Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) is home to the beloved Aussie Rules football game. According to Concierge.com, "The high-flying, fast-paced game was originally developed to keep Melbournian sportsmen fit during the winter, but subsequently grew its own fan base." And today, a match will draw as many as 100,000 fans.
A TripAdvisor user, who loved visiting the large ground, says, "Everything is really well [organized] and if you want to experience something special, Boxing day Ashes or the AFL grand final would be the best choice."
You'll find the Melbourne Cricket Ground in East Melbourne, just across the Yarra River from the Royal Botanic Gardens. Although a game would be the best way to experience MCG, visitors say the tour is pretty awesome too. A tour will cost adults $20 AUD (roughly $20 USD), while admission to the National Sports Museum costs $15 AUD. You can get a combined ticket to both attractions for $30 AUD. Game tickets vary in price. For more information, visit the MCG's website.
